This product is excellent, although taller than I expected!! But, it takes bedding and large towels with ease. The locking mechanism is smooth and doesn't fail. So it is easy to put up and down. Well finished and solidly built.

I wish I'd read other reviews more closely before buying this airer, as I have exactly the same problem as many other users with the bars being too close together to allow things to dry properly. I've persevered for many months, trying different lay-out options, but it causes grief every time I use it and it will be going to the charity shop soon.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry the airer hasn't been as expected. We'll be in touch shortly to help.
This airer is nice and sturdy and in theory has a lot of drying space for the footprint. BUT the bars are too close together which means items touch and air cannot circulate so well so they take a long time to dry.

Love the size”
Excellent airer, loads of drying space but unfortunately the horizontal support at the base finally snapped. I have been keeping an eye on it for some time as it was showing signs of buckling. In my opinion it is not strong enough to support the extensive drying area when it is full of wet laundry. I returned the broken airer to my local store (with the receipt) and it was replaced immediately but I wonder if I am going to have the same issue a few months down the line with the replacement. I think a modification to the design structure is required.

Item being returned”
I recently purchased this item, merely because its capacity was larger than my previous airer. This was a mistake, as a previous customer mentioned, the clothes when folded over rung touch the clothes beneath it, only one item of clothing can be put on each rung, and if you have long hanging garments they touch, again, the garments below, when fully loaded clothing takes longer to dry as air cannot circulate properly. Lakeland have very kindly offered to collect and refund for me as i was not satisfied with this product, i shall reorder the three tier metal/black version, my older model.

Wish I'd bought this year's ago! It's wonderful to be able to dry clothes with plenty of capacity on an airer that doesn't topple over when you put something heavy on it and large items don't drag on the floor. Fits perfectly in a confined space but the height still provides loads of drying room. Love it!

Only Good For Smalls”
Whilst very tall, in reality the bars are too close together (height between each bar) meaning you can only hang very small things like underwear and socks. Even my children's clothes overlap each so I only use 2/3 of the bars. Doesn't hold anywhere near as much as the the three tier, wider version.

sturdy and worth the money.”
Have four kids and needed something sturdy that will last.Really impressed with it, stands up on its own when its in its folded position and really tall when opened. Held a whole load on just one side and I'm really pleased with this purchase.
